Atlanta Bike Share

Atlanta residents and visitors will soon be able to rent a bike, ride across town, and drop off their two-wheeler close to their destination. How awesome is that! Atlanta Bike Share is slated to launch later this year with 500 bikes and 50 rental stations.

The five hundred bicycles will be available for short-term rentals and can be picked up and dropped up at 50 different rental stations around Atlanta. The bike share operator, based in Chicago, manages two-wheel programs in Phoenix, Tampa, and Orlando–we’re glad they went with someone with experience! With eager anticipation, we sincerely hope this program is a great success!

 

The bike share operation will use Social Bicycles‘ smart-bike system to equip each bike with a GPS-enabled locking device. That system will allow a rider to park the bike at any public bike rack or rental station. Officials also plan to set up a website and mobile app to allow riders to find and rent available bicycles.
